The Chameleon Pens booth is like stepping into a world of magic because of the colourful demos with pens that have wonderful blending possibilities. There was a buzz of excitement because Chameleon Pens launched two new products at the show: Color Tops and Coloring Pencils. There is a Kickstarter campaign that you can join if you want to support this innovative product, and just head over to the Chameleon Pens website to learn more. The cool thing about Color Tops is you can now seamlessly blend COLOR TO COLOR! Just pop any Color Top onto your original Chameleon pen, the nibs touch and you quickly and easily have a two-toned blended colouring effect. The second new launch is the coloring pencils, perfect timing for the huge rise in adult coloring and coloring books. In fact, Chameleon pens now has colouring books as well, along with coloring cards too. These innovative pencils are…

The Chameleon Pens booth is a colourful experience. With the adult colouring book craze in full swing, Chameleon Pens are trending. For those of you unfamiliar with Chameleon pens, they are alcohol based pens, each one producing varying tones of the same colour. This means you need only one colour of each pen instead of many pens to blend multiple tones. Chamelon Pens feature • Double-Ended Pen • Japanese SuperSoft Brush Nib and Bullet Nib • Professional Quality Alcohol-Based Ink • Refillable Inks • Replaceable Nibs • Permanent on Most Surfaces • Compatible with all other Alcohol-Based Inks • Non-Toxic and Low Odor • Ideal for All Paper Crafts, Manga, Graphic and Fine Art Currently, the full Deluxe set of Chameleon Color Tones Pens consists of 20 vibrant colours, plus a detail black pen and colourless toning/blending pen. They are also sold as singles and 5 pen sets, plus nibs and…

Chameleon Pens and Colouring Books! By Karen Ellis Okay, it’s official.   I am stating for the record that I, Karen Ellis, love to colour! I have jumped on the adult colouring book band wagon and have come to appreciate the zen time it offers.   Combine those books and Chameleon Pens…  Oh yes!!   I’m in heaven. If you haven’t tried Chameleon Pens yet, I invite you to do so.   They are alcohol based pens (like Copic and Spectrum Noir) which allows great blend ability, but what makes these pens special is the built in charger that allows you to change the saturation of the pen ink while colouring.  Brilliant!  Instant highlights, gradation, and shadowing! I love “hopping” the colour, and creating colour gradations with my Chameleon Pens to create depth and highlights but I wanted to show you here how I used the pens to change the colour’s tone to expand…

Kim Gowdy here with a simple page anyone can create. I don’t know about you but sometimes I head to my craft room in hopes of being creative, turn on the T.V. for “company” and get pulled into whatever show happens to be on…making for some very unproductive creative time. If this sounds familiar…this page is for YOU! Adornit has come out with these fun Art Play Printables. 12 x 22 pages with fun images for you to colour, I am certain you find a few you can’t live without! The pages are made from sturdy, quality watercolour paper, so they will stand up easily to paint and markers. So here’s the  trick…turn on the T.V. and colour! Relax, enjoy the program and be productive…your brain can design a layout [which takes more focus] later! For this layout I pulled out my Chameleon pens and just had fun. They make it so easy…

Nothing is more exciting than new markers!!! I feel like a little kid. Canuck Crafts Spectrum Noir Markers has improved and revamped their alcohol markers. I love the little rubber grips and the bigger ink reservoir…. Yet they are still very reasonably priced. I used these markers to create this great background for my art journal page. I have to confess that I have never taken any formal training in colouring with alcohol markers… I will share my hack way of colouring. 1. I started by stamping this poppy from Stampendous in black Memento ink. 2. I choose 3-5 colours that are in a similar family…from a very light to very dark. I don’t really pay attention too closely to the numbers (though they are great for a beginner). I start by colouring the lightest part of the image with a light colour. 3. I…
